Villa near Burnham

Previous - Next

Burnham. - Near this village is a small villa in the castellated Gothic style, faced with beautiful white Stourbridge brick, in tolerable taste; but the grounds are badly arranged, and neglected. We entered this villa through the grounds belonging to a very pretty cottage occupied by a Mrs. Jackson. The passage is under a veranda, which, beyond the house, changes to an arcade of climbing plants; through the openings in which are seen groups of flowers on lawn.
